A senior US Volkswagen executive is due to appear in court in Miami on Monday, following his arrest on Saturday over the emissions-rigging scandal.
Oliver Schmidt was in charge of VW’s US environmental regulatory compliance office from 2012 until March 2015.
He was arrested on charges that he took part in a conspiracy to defraud the US and VW customers.
Meanwhile, in the UK, lawyers said 10,000 VW owners had already expressed an interest in suing VW. They estimated that owners could get “several thousand” pounds in compensation.
